BMW Plant Leipzig starts today the series production of the BMW 2 Series Coupe. The new model replaces the BMW 1 Series Coupe, which was built in Leipzig from September 2007 until beginning of October 2013. 150,000 models were built and sold globally.

After the current BMW 1 Series Coupe and 1 Series Convertible production ended in early October, the Leipzig plant was adapted for the production of 2 Series Coupe and other future models. In addition, employees were trained for the new model. The BMW Leipzig plant currently produces the BMW X1 and the BMW 1 Series five-door. Moreover since mid-September this year, there is a separate production line of the BMW i3.

    this is the one that will replace the old 3 series , it will be a great Coupe, small and fast , now that the 3 has grown the 2 is just perfect in size,,,,

  2. Giom says:

    I love the proportions of this car. No doubt it harks back to the original 3… but better!

    everything looks good until you get to the rear end: it’s sorta fat and dumpy.

    and what about the potential issues with direct injection and carbon buildup on the valves?
